I didn’t know I could buy from Ultra Sabers because the only people I had talked to were those that had gotten a custom made lightsaber. But after scouring the RL forums, I saw that people before me had bought an Ultra Saber and I was feeling better and better about my purchase. Oh! And it was on sale for Halloween 🙂
I first contacted someone in the Rebel Legion to make me a custom lightsaber based on my favorite designs I had seen out there. He came back with a really nice design…and a price tag of around $250. UGH. Why does this costume insist on sucking all the money from me?
I have finally set up a separate savings account to channel a bit of money into each month for my costuming. That way, it seems like I’m saving up for my costumes and not just blowing through our money. But I do not have $250 in that account.
I explained my situation and he understood. He actually has a separate bank account for costuming as well! Definitely made me feel better, but I still felt awful when I emailed him today saying I had gone with a more generic hilt and blade on Ultra Sabers.
However, I am so happy about it. I only spent about $90 total and I got a blade and hilt out of it. I requested a green blade, if anyone cares, because Qui-Gon is my favorite Old Republic Jedi. Wooo.
Excuse the crazy, sporadic post but I’m super excited.
